Ganna is currently the PI of an FCT funded project within the [...]

Testing for COVID-19 at CIÊNCIAS

2020-07-29T10:55:56+00:00 June 12th, 2020|

CIÊNCIAS and BioISI are once again associated with an initiative to fight COVID-19. Coordinated by BioISI's integrated member Ricardo Dias, a Center for COVID Testing was installed at the TecLabs building. This Center is entirely dedicated to the mitigation of COVID-19 - virus screening and immunological tests - but will potentially serve future [...]
